Walt Disney World, the most magical place on earth, is famous for its themed rides, attractions, restaurants, and family-friendly atmosphere. Each and every person, young and old alike, will delight in the thrills, chills, laughter, joy, and everything associated with the Disney experience. In addition to all the exciting rides, entertainment, and unique attractions, Walt Disney World has a multitude of dining options, from elaborate character dinners to a variety of quick service meals, or small kiosks where you can get a small snack. Try some of these locations for a great cookie treat.
5. Carrot Cake Cookie-Hollywood Studios-The Writer’s Stop
The Writer’s Stop, located in Hollywood Studios, is a quaint little “shop around the corner” near the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. Most visitors stroll right past this mostly overlooked coffee shop and bookstore. What they are missing is a cozy little store, where you can find a variety of items, including books, souvenirs, and assorted kitchen accessories.
The best part of this Disney hidden treasure are the sweet snacks; such as cake pops, rice crispy treats, a Mickey brownie or cupcake, and assorted cookies. One of the best cookies in Walt Disney World can be found right here. It is the carrot cake cookie, which consists of a thick layer of luscious cream cheese frosting sandwiched between two scrumptious carrot cake cookies. The best way to enjoy your cookie is to accompany it with a hot cup of gourmet coffee or other hot or cold beverage, then find a comfy chair or couch, relax, and enjoy the peace and quiet for as long as you want. There are also a limited number of tables and chairs. There is even a television playing Disney cartoons for your little ones. Try to fit The Writer’s Stop and their signature carrot cake cookie into your busy morning, afternoon, or evening.
4. Homemade Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich-Magic Kingdom-Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
The Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor is located at the end of Main Street on the right hand corner, just before you get to the central hub. Like the ice cream parlors of yesteryear, this old-fashioned counter service establishment has been delighting visitors with an array of classic ice cream sundaes, floats, and cones since Walt Disney World opened in 1971. Usually in the early evenings, just before the Main Street Electrical Parade, there will be a line out the door with anxious parade watchers trying to get that special ice cream treat before the parade begins.
One of the best desserts here is the homemade ice cream cookie sandwich. This yummy union of cookies and ice cream is worth the wait. They take two freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and between them they place two heaping scoops of your favorite ice cream, squeeze them together and “voila!, there you have it, the best ice cream cookie sandwich ever!. My advice would be to save this dessert for later in the evening, several hours after lunch or dinner. After all, you will be consuming 2 large chocolate chip cookies and almost ½ pint of ice cream. This is a perfect dessert to enjoy while watching the parade, or anytime, but make sure you are sitting down, because you will need both hands to control the overflow.
3. Caramel Apple Cookie-Karamell-Kuche-German Pavilion-World Showcase-Epcot
While touring the WDW World Showcase, be sure to stop by the Germany pavilion and visit the Karmell-Kuche(Caramel Kitchen). Sponsored by Werther’s Original Caramel, this picturesque little bakery and confectionary is noted for including the delicious, smooth taste of Werther’s famous caramels on every item in the large glass cases. There are caramel apples, popcorn, chocolate fudge, chocolate covered strawberries, turtles, pretzel sticks, toffee, and many more lip-smacking goodies, all topped with a drizzle of caramel.
One exceptional treat is the caramel apple cookie. This mouth watering homemade oatmeal cookie is filled with dried apple chunks and covered with a sweet caramel sauce. It is incredibly moist and chewy, with just the right combination of sweet and salty. You will be glad you made the trip to Germany.
2. Italian Gelato Cookie Sandwich-Italian Kiosk-Italy pavilion-WDW World Showcase –Epcot
Located next door to the Germany pavilion in WDW World Showcase is the Italy pavilion, and right in front of Italy is a small Italian Gelato kiosk, where you can purchase a truly unique frozen treat.
The Italian gelato cookie sandwich is different from a regular ice cream cookie sandwich. Because it uses no air in the blending process and less butterfat, gelato is richer and creamier and tends to melt in your mouth faster than ice cream. You can choose your favorite flavor of gelato, and it will be placed between two chocolate chip cookies to form your gelato cookie sandwich. Soon after your first bite, you will taste the difference between the ice cream you are familiar with and the Italian gelato. If you’re in the area, satisfy your curiosity and try an Italian gelato cookie sandwich.
1. Magic Cookie Bar-Roaring Fork-Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
Just a bus ride away from the Magic Kingdom, inside the Wilderness Lodge resort, is a small quick service eatery called the Roaring Fork, where you can grab a snack or sit down to breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The menu consists mainly of sandwiches, salads, and pasta, but there is one unique dessert item that will shock your taste buds.
The Magic Cookie Bar is made up of a hodgepodge of ingredients that blend together, creating a decadent cookie bar that is bursting with flavor. A graham cracker crust is covered with condensed milk, chocolate and butterscotch chips, caramel, coconut, and chopped nuts, then baked to perfection. One bite and you will realize why they call this the “Magic” cookie bar.
